  2. Place the lid on the Instant pot, move the venting knob to “sealing”, and cook on “Manual” at High Pressure for 20 minutes. Once the timer beeps, let it naturally release for 10 minutes, then move the knob to “venting” to let the remaining steam out.

  2. Cover the slow cooker and cook on low for 6-8 hours, or high for 4-6 hours.
  3. Using tongs, remove the chicken from the slow cooker and shred with two forks. Add the chicken back to the slow cooker and stir. Serve with favorite toppings.
